    The Chinese should just use some of those special light bulbs and ask to have their groceries bagged in paper, not plastic. That would take care of it!

    I've been to China twice and spent time in several cities 'unsupervised'. Sure there is pollution, but you don't have to leave the U.S. to see pollution or environmental abuse. Unless you don't buy products made in China, its a little hypocritcal to criticize China while enjoying the $ you saved shopping at sprawl-mart. I'm no fan of the Chinese government, but I have great empathy for the people and what they endure to try to enjoy or acheive what the average American takes for granted and often throws away.

    So how stupid is it that we are having the Olympics in China, hope all those that come to the country will come back alive. I just wonder what bribery it took to get the IOC to give the Olympics to a country that is not only physically polluted, but also mentally, at least with the government.

    Can't get any more "green" and environmentally friendly than "weather manipulation".

    I think it's lovely that the worlds #1 polluter is trying to bill these as "Green Olympics". And the professional dupes in the media just lap it up.

    "Weather manipulation efforts" and "trying to prevent rain"? How exactly do they propose to do that?
